what i want to know is how they keep their clothes/underwear clean as they are only in each hotel for a short period of time .

Guy and Richard will have flunkies to wash their smalls. But what does Isaac do?
so each person has a flunkie that will was the underware otherwise surely it would get all mixed up.This is keeping me awake at night.
Oh Issac doesn't appear to shower or wash the whole tour so he only needs one pair.If he did surely it would be in his blog.If it ain't there it didn't happen

Me too. But I gave this a lot of thought last night and I imagine that Mark writes his name on the label of his M&S y-fronts in biro so that one flunky will suffice on undercracker patrol.

It wasn't a nasty post, he used a smiley. Smileys are the internet equivalent of diplomatic immunity.

I liked the post. To quote Homer Simpson, "It's funny 'cause it's true."

Still love Richard's diary though, especially now Isaac is gone.

Where's the "like button" when you need it!?

It makes me remember the controversial karma button we used to had here, far better right now without it  ;D

Richard has posted his last diary entry for this tour. Some nice lines and interesting thoughs about Mr. Bob. It seems Mark is indeed the only one from the band who has met Bob. He also talks about rushing into the studio directly from the stage and doing two weeks of session work for Mark's new album.

Thought I might share it here, because this diary was a nice companion during the tour for me, so thanks Richard for your Notes From The Road!

You know..you would think that Bob might want to break bread..or at least a few cocktails with this fine group of musicians. Mark obviously spent a great deal of time with Bob's bandmates. I know it's just 'Bob being Bob'....but it's still a little rude. Thankfully Richard doesn't seem to take it to heart..and it was a pleasure to read his diaries.

Although Mark probably has his awkward sides for the guys to deal with, he must be so more easygoing and reasonable than Dylan. I wonder what Dylan's band think after having been around Mark and the boys for a while. "You mean, we could have had this??"

I'm liking the fact that they're heading straight into the studio just after such a well perfomed tour. The energy level seems to be on its highest.

This can only be good and you'll most certainly hear all this coming down on the fortcoming album!

Great times ahead!

I wonder if they will be tempted to re-record any of the new songs they played live?

Well, Mark being Mark I think it is most likely.

By the way, yesterday GF wrote:"As soon as I have some free time at home, about three weeks from now"
(question was: "When will you be back on the golf course? ")
And she's sitting in her Lusso, in the early morning sun.

Richard has written in his latest entry:

The recording we did in London these past couple of weeks with Mark was nothing short of brilliant.... the songs, performances as well as a couple of the guests that joined us for a few days each; Tim O'Brien and harmonica legend Kim Wilson.  No idea when this new record will be released but I think it's safe to say sometime in 2012.


Plus some music written and played by his son, Nick!   :)
